Target’s $1 section has to be my biggest weakness. I have a love hate relationship with this section of the store. Most things are a $1 and before you know it, you’ve filled up your basket and your quick stop to pick up that $5 necessity has now become a $40 shopping trip. I just can’t help myself! It takes tremendous willpower to walk right past it without glancing over there.
This week, they just refilled it with new kids stuff, so guess what… I have a great new kit for our next road trip!
My daughter has gotten to the fun age where she can have just about anything, but my son still likes to rip pages on a traditional book. The challenge is to try and find stuff that they will both appreciate. Here is what I came up with.
My set includes:
- Coloring books
- Pencil Case
- A new set of crayons
- A few cardboard books
- A Play Pack
- Mini Magna-Doodle Pad
If you’re wondering what a Play Pack is, it’s got to be one of the best inventions ever. They are found in the dollar section and contain a variety of different things for kids 3+. They typically will have a color book of some sorts and have things like stickers, stencils, crayons and other things to keep the kids entertained. We usually try and grab one for the kids before we go out to a restaurant because they don’t always have the most entraining sheets. It can keep a kid busy for 30 minutes plus. You do want to check whats in there so you don’t end up with no crayons while you are out. Or if your child is not responsible with stickers… make sure to grab those out before giving it to them.
